The FBI Searched Biden’s Think Tank in November
The infuriatingly rhetorical question is: Why are we learning about it only now?
As the old saying goes, It’s not the crime; it’s the cover-up. Unless, of course, you’re a Democrat, in which case it’s not the cover-up, either.
Yesterday — only yesterday — we learned that the FBI had conducted a search for classified documents at Joe Biden’s DC think tank in November, shortly after his aides had found such material and turned it over to the National Archives.
“The search,” as The Wall Street Journal reports, “came after Mr. Biden’s lawyers agreed to let agents search his former office at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, where aides on Nov. 2 discovered roughly a dozen documents marked classified. It couldn’t be determined whether investigators found any additional items in the search.”
Whoa. The search of Biden’s non-secure think tank only came after his lawyers agreed to let the FBI do so?
Strange, but we don’t recall any such professional courtesy being extended by the woefully corrupt FBI to former President Donald Trump’s lawyers before they raided his secure Mar-a-Lago home and began rifling through his son Baron’s stuff and sniffing around the former first lady’s underwear drawer.
Why are we only now hearing about this search? It sure seems, given all the fuss they’d been making about Trump’s classified docs, that this was an equally big deal.
If only Donald Trump could’ve hidden from the public the politically damaging discovery of his classified materials for a couple of months or so, just to get it beyond the midterm elections. If only he could’ve given the media a series of incomplete, incorrect, and evasive statements. If only he could’ve kept the feds from leaking damaging details and sharing incendiary photos of the docs found at Mar-a-Lago.
As for getting any answers about the Biden case, the cat apparently has everyone’s tongue. As the Journal notes, a Justice Department spokesman refused to comment. Same with a spokesman for the White House Counsel’s Office. And ditto a spokesman for the University of Pennsylvania, the
Biden cash cow Ivy League school that hauled in “around $61 million in gifts and contracts from China between 2017 and 2019,” according to The Washington Free Beacon, including some $22 million in anonymous gifts, and that paid Joe Biden a total of nearly $800,000 during 2017 and 2018, even though Professor Joe didn’t teach so much as a single class.
Nice work if you can grift it.
Here’s another remarkable courtesy extended by the Biden Justice Department to the Biden White House: After the initial discovery of classified docs in DC, Merrick Garland’s DOJ decided against having FBI agents monitor the Biden legal team’s search for additional docs at Biden’s Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach homes.
Not that Team Transparency would be anything but forthcoming regarding its private search of itself.
And just today, in fact, we learned that the DOJ will now search Biden’s Rehoboth Beach home, now that Team Biden has had a few weeks to search it themselves. “The search today,” said Biden attorney Bob Bauer, “is a further step in a thorough and timely DOJ process we will continue to fully support and facilitate.”
No wonder they “fully support” the DOJ’s “process.” It’s corrupt.
“This story,” writes columnist David Harsanyi, “is being leaked in small doses to mitigate the political damage. But the fact is that Biden probably knew he was [in] possession of many classified documents, some for a decade or more.”
All the while, Joe Biden was sanctimoniously wondering aloud to Scott Pelley of CBS’s “60 Minutes”: “How that could possibly happen. How anyone could be that irresponsible. And it just — totally irresponsible.”
What a lying scumbag.
